AZ (Availability Zone, or Zone)

What is an AZ?

An AZ, availability zone, or just “zone”, typically refers to a single data warehouse within a region. Multiple warehouses/zones make up a single region. Sometimes, an availability zone isn’t at the warehouse level, but instead at the rack level - i.e., a single rack within a warehouse.
